Suicide Squad fans petition to shut down Rotten Tomatoes for negative reviews

Well, that’s one way of dealing with bad reviews.

After months of build-up, Suicide Squad is here! The fans are LOVING it, but the reviews are… well, decidedly mixed – and that’s putting it kindly.

The DC movie has been met with negative write-ups pretty much across the board, and currently has a score of just 35% on Rotten Tomatoes(ouch).

The petition has been signed by nearly 7,000 fans, and accuses the site of publishing “unjust bad reviews… that affects people’s opinion even if it’s a really great [movie]”.

Perhaps taking inspiration from the supervillains depicted on-screen, fans are so annoyed at the verdict that they actually want to shut the site down… yes, really.

 Abdullah Coldwater from Egypt has launched a Change.org petition to close Rotten Tomatoes for an apparent bias against DC movies.

  1. But…but… doesn’t Rotten Tomatoes just gather individual critics’ reviews? At any rate, fans have every right to be passionate about the films they love, and I bet these filmmakers couldn’t be more pleased by the Fan Love.

  2. Love the gif. Look at the end of the day Rotten Tomatoes is what it is. We all know some good films only get 50-65% on there and some bad films score lower than they should. It’s all part of getting the broad consensus I guess. I don’t really go on the site much. I actually look to critics to give me an indication of the likely quality of the film but RT I’ve never really gotten into. As others have pointed out here, regardless if I’m interested in something, I go and see it for myself and make up my own mind. Once I’ve done that, I could care less what Rotten Tomatoes says.
